Join MAP: Become a mentor to an incoming student
April 24, 2012
The Mentor Advocate Partnership (MAP) program is a volunteer mentoring program designed to foster a student’s holistic development along both academic and non-academic dimensions. Studies show that students with adult mentors positively adjust to college, are more likely to graduate and fare better on other key measures of college success than students who do not make mentoring connections.
At the core of MAP is a sincere, trusting partnership between a student and mentor that has the potential to endure throughout the undergraduate years. It is also a fun way to give back and reconnect to the MIT community, offering experience and support to incoming freshmen.
If interested, attend the Information Session tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25, in 1-246 from 12:30-1:30 pm. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. Lunch will be provided.
